The criminal justice curriculum is made up of law enforcement courses and a carefully selected group of general education requirements
designed to prepare each student for a career in the field of law enforcement and human relations.
Students are carefully counseled in order to ensure that they are able to enter a law enforcement agency of their choice. This counseling
process includes physical, mental and emotional areas, as well as background requirements. Students are required to take various
examinations that are common to the field of law enforcement. These examinations include quarterly physical ability examinations. Passing
these physical ability tests is a prerequisite to CJ 237.
Portions of this two-year curriculum are transferable to four-year institutions. Students interested in four-year degrees should inquire
at the college to which they plan to transfer for specific information.
Credits from the Spokane Police Academy can apply toward meeting the course requirements of this program.
A prior criminal, traffic or drug history may exclude individuals from employment. For further information, contact a program instructor.
